I know this might be too much of an ask, but would you mind doing a full day of eating on here? I could really use some ideas and I admire you so much.

Ok you are the absolute cutest, thank you! That last part meant a lot to me, thanks. I honestly would be cool with answering this but I have learned from experience that there are too many people with unsolicited opinions on what others eat. ha so I'm going to pass, I'm sorry! (Not to say you would do this, but I don't want to risk other followers chiming in. But thank you again for that last part, that really meant a lot.

Do you think you'd ever go vegetarian or vegan?

Nope. I don't think it'd be healthy for me to because I don't have enough diligence to make sure my diet is well rounded enough. I also just really like sushi and chicken.

what happened to your blog? i used to follow you.

Actually I'm really glad you asked this because I'll be blogging again really soon! Like this weekend probably, and then I have 2 other posts after that so I'm actually being a decent blogger for once.
Thanks so much for asking this btw, it made me really happy to hear that someone would care about my blog after all this time. To answer your question, I took a long break because I got busy in school and full disclosure, kind of went through a period of depression where my interest in sewing was the first thing to go. But I'm back at it again so posts to come! :)

How do you feel about body positivity/ fat activism?

I have mixed thoughts. I think that body acceptance is very, very important and affects your emotional health tremendously, so should be a factor in the whole health equation overall. However, I don't agree with those that take it to the extreme and say that there are no health consequences of being obese and that it's perfectly healthy. It is scientifically proven that obesity is linked to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, etc. so just ignoring that is not being very rational in my opinion. I also am bothered by the "thin shaming" that occurs in these types of communities.
Basically I think health should be the goal, both physical and emotional included.

To the person that sent me a question earlier today mentioning seeing me..

Haylee Atkinson
Can you please give me more background? I'm just really confused and scared because people that would see me don't know about D so I'm confused. Please for my sanity and clarity explain where, do you just mean like online or something?

do you read gomi?

I did once upon a time but then realized it was making me sad. It just made me feel depressed seeing how critical people were about other people. Occasionally I'll want to get on it still, don't get me wrong, because it IS entertaining but I'm just trying my best not to because I'm sensitive to things like that.
I feel like this response is coming across as really "holier than though" and I don't want to sound that way AT ALL. Because obviously once upon a time I looked at it too. ha so don't think I think I'm better than it or anything. Far from that, I just noticed that for me personally it made my depression worse so I had to be careful with it. Nothing against those that read it though, like I said that was me once upon a time so I totally get it! It's super interesting reading other people's opinions, that's why forums are like my favorite part of the internet. haha
I am curious, why do you ask?

I'm now a 23 year-old-man, but I still remember when I found your blog years ago ... and then saw you on BYU campus years after. My mouth dried, and my legs wouldn't move - I wanted to speak with you, to hear your voice, but between my fear, and your beauty ... it wasn't going to happen. Next time.

Wait really??? I honestly don't think you know how much this meant for you to say. I'm completely in shock right now. Me?? Like are you sure you saw the right girl? For real though.
I am going to be real and honest with you for a sec, because I so appreciated you being open with me. Just before reading your message tonight I was struggling with feeling like no one would ever want to date me and just feeling really inadequate in general I guess. And your comment completely turned my life around. Even if you were just being nice, it seriously made a huge difference in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I really hope you'll reach out to me because I would really love to know who you are.

To the person who sent me a question about Netflix the other day..

Haylee Atkinson
I have 0% desire to see it. I am in a really good head space lately and honestly, I just find all that stuff depressing and sad now, I have no interest in it anymore. At one time in my life, I found comfort in that so I completely get it if you don't feel the same, but for me right now in my life, I am just really really ready to move on.
Also sorry for not posting your actual question. I don't want to brand myself with anything, I hope you understand.

What traits do you have that are just like your mother?

Um I'm friendly like her. I get depressed like her to be honest, ha um I have her dimples and round face. What else, I love music and to sing in the car like she does. We both sew, we both like to watch Married at First Sight. :)

Are you sometimes shy or afraid of making connections with new people?

Yes for sure! This is a big thing for me actually. I'm not shy but I just have a hard time letting people in I guess. So you're not alone anon!

Best part of your day today? Worst part?

Best- Today's been a good day in general so far, but probably going to this floral crown workshop with my sister this morning, and liking how mine turned out.
Worst- My least favorite part is usually later on so I guess it hasn't happened yet. If that's a cop out answer, I'll say thinking about starting a new job on Monday because I'm just really nervous about it.

What are you really curious about?

Hm, how people live their lives is interesting to me. Also what it would look like to take a picture of a picture of a picture of a picture, and so on for like 100 pictures. That sounds kind of insane I know but I always wanted to try it as a kid and still do but you know, #effort. haha one of these days I'm going to do it though.

Why don't you ever answer your questions on here?

I know I'm sorry! I'll be better, I'll answer all the ones in my inbox right now if that helps. Ihonesfly don't get that many! So you're probably talking about the ones all related to each other, ha which if you asked them you'd know what I was talking about and I just don't feel comfortable with those ones. Sorry!

This is kinda surreal.. but I just recieved a follow request from your instagram account. I used to follow your blog years ago! I had lost it at some point, but always admired your talent and strengths :) Anyway what a way to stumble across you again! Best wishes, Aly.

Ahh no way? What a small world! What's your instagram? I'm so glad I followed it then. haha, thanks for telling me this btw, it meant a lot to me. :)

What is your favorite Conspiracy theory? and if you could solve one mystery what mystery would it be?

Hm fun question! I'd say favorite conspiracy theory is one of the "government inside job" type theories.. like 911, JFK, or that the AIDS virus was created intentionally. (Not saying I agree, just fascinating to learn about.)
Mystery-wise, the Dyatlov Pass Incident.
